I am sure this would help alot also, however, then the design of the oven "breakes", and the wife approval factor was the main reason why I bought it - this and also that its designed for nordic climate.
I think I some time in the future will have to invest in a small brick oven, also
Peter, what's more important to you, your wife's approval or great pizza?
From what I can tell, this is the only oven of it's kind, that, with some slight modifications can do authentically leoparded Neapolitan pizza. Not to mention that the mod I'm describing wouldn't ruin the aesthetic. It would limit your view of the fire, but, between having a fireplace I can look at versus having a pizza I can eat... well, you know which one I'm going with
